International Baccalaureate (IB)


The International Baccalaureate program enables us to teach Utah State Core Standards with greater rigor and depth, while also helping students develop social/emotional skills and an awareness of global issues. We believe that students learn best when instruction and assessment are differentiated to meet individual needs. The following is a sampling of the strategies, materials, and assessment tools used by our teachers.

Language Arts

Our teachers use many resources and strategies to develop transdisciplinary units of study in Language Arts. Here are few:

Intervention using i-Spire and Orton Gillingham Method.


Channing Hall has implemented the Engaged New York curriculum for PYP and McGraw Hill Math in MYP to meet the Utah Common Core Standards.

  • i-Ready
  • Guided Math
  • Khan Academy
  • Gizmo

Science/Social Studies

As much as possible, all content is taught through the IB units of inquiry. Social Studies and Science most often are the foundation of an IB unit. Teachers draw on the following resources in planning and implementing these IB units.

Tools for Assessment

Assessments provide a snapshot of a student’s ability and help teachers customize classroom instruction. In addition to regular classroom assignments, projects, and tests, we use the following assessments in accordance with state law:

  • RISE
  • Lexia RAPID Assessment
  • EasyCBM
